BOAT THAT WILL
BE RIVER IMPETUS
One That Can Navigate on In
land Streams and Deep Seas
Has Been Invented.
SOON TO BE IN COMMISSION
For More Than UO Years St- Ixuisan
Has Devoted Himself to Its
A vessel, designed to operate both
on the high seas and on inland rivers
has been invented and is just now
being brought to perfection by John F.
Ca.hill, a well known St. Louisan, and
plans for the construction of a pioneer
boat after Mr. Cahill'a models are ex-
pected to mature at an early date.
V Extraordinary light draft, combined
with large tonnage, seaworthiness,
safety and speed, are claimed for the
new boat by its inventor, and that it
possesses these qualities is vouched
for by some notable authorities on
Coming, as it does, at atinie when
inland waterways traffic is a subjeo
attracting national attention, the in
vention is one of exceptional interest.
With such a vessel placed in commis
sion, Mr. Cahill promises freight and
passenger traffic from St. Louis, or
other inland cities on the larger
streams, to interior points on the
great rivers of South America, or else
where, without the necessity of a
transfer of cargo or passengers at deep
.-"" Small Fortune In Experiments."
vJPor more than 20 years Mr. Cahill
has devoted himself to the perfection
of this type of vessel, and during that
time has spent a small fortune in ex
perimenting, improving and perfecting
his ideas. Thirty years of experience
with the Latin-American people and
trade have convinced him that the uso

The (low center of gravity afforded
by the peculiar, shape of the. hull and
upper work construction is 'further
added to by a series of adjustable
keels, in sections, which are so con
structed that they can be dropped to
four or more feet below the bottom
of the hull at a moment's notice, and
are held rigidly in strongly built case
ments whenever more stability i3
needed at sea. When navigating shal
low rivers, crossing bars and in other
shoal waters, the adjustable keels can
be quickly drawn up in watertight
compartments, occupying only a small
space lengthwise in the hull.
1,000 Ton Capacity.
For shallow waters in the Mississip
pi or other rivers, the capacity of the
vessel is estimated at 1,000 tons on an
eight-foot stage and over 2,000 tons
on a 12-foot stage. The latter depth
is available from St. Louis to the gulf
during seven or eight months of each
year, in the present condition of the
river, and the tight-foot channel at all
times, according to the best authority
the United States government engi
neers. For 14 years Mr. Cahill was consul
for Mexico at St. Louis and editor oC
El Comerico del Valle, a publication
to promote trade between Mexico,
South and Central America and the
United States. In 1S72 he engaged In
the wholesale drug business in Cuba,
but his business was confiscated by
the Spanish government. He now has
a claim for about $250,000 pending at
Washington again?t Spain. For a great
many years he has devoted all his
time to the perfecting of this ocean
going vessel, which, in his opinion will

If people could only understand
that systematic catarrh is an internal
Jisease that external applications
cannot cure, they would not need to ;
be warned so often about this malady,
which, when neglected, paves the way
oftentimes for consumption, at the
cost of millions of lives every year.
Yet catarrh may be cured if the right
treatment is employed.
Catarrh is caused by a general dis
eased state of the system which leads

r Drove a fertile breedlne eround for
germs of consumption. External
remedies give but temporary ease.
The only way to successfully treat
satarrh is by employing a medicine
' which is absorbed and carried by
the blood to all parts of the system,
so that the mucous membrarie or in
ternal lining of the body is toned up
and made capable of resisting the in
I fection of consumption and other dis-
We have a remedy prepared from
the prescription of a physician who

was a patient restored to health in
Bvery case where his treatment was
followed as prescribed. That remedy
Is Rexall Mucu-Tofie. We are so pos
itive that it will completely overcome
catarrh in all it3 various forms,
whether acute or chronic, that we
promise to return every penny paid
us for the medicine in every case
where it fails or for any reason does
not satisfy the user.
We want you to try Rexall Mucu

guarantee. We are right here where
you live, and you do not contract any
obligation or risk when you' try Rexall
Mucu-Tone in two sizes, 50 cents and

50-ceht bottle is sufficient to make a
marked impression upon the case. Of

such Instances is three $1.00 bottles.
